This was a fantastic workout. My glute pain had settled - probably pulled a little due to all the squatting down while painting. I got down to the track and unlocked the rails, then did a 400m warmup.
My first 800m I decided to not push too hard as I wanted to try for some good speeds for the total 5. I would stop for 30secs and then really push hard for the 200m.
My body held together well, with no glute pain during the whole walk. I did have one dizzy spell but I managed to get through that with out stopping. I felt strong the whole walk and didnt feel too out of breath.
here are my km splits. Each has 30secs between 800m & 200m and then a 2min recovery.
4.07.1 + .59.5 = 5.06.6
4.04.4 + .58.2 = 5.02.6
4.04.0 + .57.0 = 5.01.0
4.05.0 + .56.7 = 5.01.7
4.06.0 + .54.7 = 5.00.7
800 + 200 x 5
